Public hydrogen filling station opens


The state of Baden-Württemberg is now home to a hydrogen filling station, with new filling technology for enhanced user-friendliness and extended operating range.

OMV Aktiengesellschaft (OMV), one of Austria’s largest listed industrial companies, has joined forces with Daimler AG, a global leading producer of premium passenger cars and the global market leader for heavy- and medium-duty trucks and buses, The Linde Group, and the State of Baden-Württemberg, to build Baden-Württemberg’s first public hydrogen filling station for emission-free mobility of the future.

The filling station is located on the site of the OMV service station at Stuttgart Airport; it will serve fuel-cell vehicles of the latest generation, such as the Mercedes-Benz B-Class F-CELL, with 700-bar high-pressure technology. Small-series production of this vehicle is to commence later this year in Germany.

The successful cooperation between the participating companies has been subsidised by the State of Baden-Württemberg. Within the framework of a public-private partnership, the hydrogen station will provide an important impulse for a future supply network for this German federal state, thus supporting the operation of local emission-free electric vehicles on the basis of fuel-cell technology.
